Fasten your uniform buttons and get ready to travel back to the golden age of air travel. In the 1960s, when jets were new, the stewardess was an all-American fantasy: hostess, nurse, cook, therapist and even sex symbol. In this virtual historical portrayal, historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., takes you on an exciting, true story about the real-life stewardesses for Pan Am, the most glamorous U.S. airline. Learn about serving the rich and famous; about the strict height, weight and age requirements; about cooking gourmet meals and enduring some wild rides. Buckle up – this is one flight you won’t forget.
Inspired by the books “Up in the Air” by Betty Riegel (2020) and “Come Fly the World” by Julia Cooke (2021).
